I remember when I was in middle or high school and my parents were discussing Martha Stewart, trying to solve the riddle of her popularity and success, and this was when she was JUST a magazine and TV show. I think my mom hit the fancy, color coordinated thumbtack on the head when she said, Martha Stewart makes homemaking an art and something beautiful.
So true. 20 years later, and she's still at it but not just with crafting and baking. She has turned her creativity to the entire house, right down to filing those boring papers and labeling leftovers.
Label your leftovers or fruit you've preserved or vegetables you've frozen; the kitchen labels are freezer and dishwasher proof, so you'll never have to wonder ... what is this and when did I make it?
And my to-do lists just got a whole lot prettier with her ORANGE notepad that even has little dots to check. it. off. (The real reason I make to-do lists, that satisfaction of that little X ... just something about it.)
The Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery line also includes some pretty Corner Lock™ High Capacity Document Sleeves that are closed on two sides but also include a little corner tab to keep the papers safely tucked in. I like that they're clear, so you can see what's inside, or you can use one of the labels to keep things straight.
She even makes calendaring pretty! That will be tucked in my purse with promises of being more organized next year.
She's even prettified the sticky notepad with the little corner cut-outs. If you're the color coordinating-buy-just-because-it's-cute type of person, you're going to love every single thing in the Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery line for coordinating everything office related to your heart's content. Nice. Make filing a joy? I'm on board.
